Studying in Heidelberg
Students from abroad have the opportunity to study full-time at the University of Heidelberg or to complete one or more semesters abroad. As a rule, the language of instruction is German, but a number of English-language courses are also offered.
The University of Heidelberg offers students from abroad a wide range of support and advisory services, such as tutorials or the Buddy Program. The University of Heidelberg also supports students from abroad with questions about housing, financing and visas.
If you would like to study for a short time at the University of Heidelberg without obtaining a degree, there is the possibility of a so-called short-term study. Short-term studies are only aimed at international students.
